I've tried to take enough care in completing my monthly TBR that I have some hope of completing it.


The First Queen of England has been on my list for months and is part of my research for my next book, so I WILL read it this month.


The Greatest Knight I have had to review for months and will stop putting off reading it.


Death of a Dishonorable Gentleman is part of my quest to reduce my outstanding NetGalley books.


A Tree Grows is Brooklyn is my local book club selection and sounds better than most of what we read.


Sacred Treason is the monthly read in More Historical Than Fiction. Join Us!


Wolf Hall I am "rereading" in audiobook format and am loving it (again).


Robyn Hode is by my Uhtred bashing friend, David Pilling, and the rest are simply books that I can't wait to read!
